Well, regardless, unless all you have is a smtp server that receives
personal e-mails from friends, you don't want those major webmail
providers blocked. I hate hotmail with a passion, and still doesn't
want it blocked on my servers (or my clients').

So, blocking those is pretty stupid. Regardless.

Spamcop blocks automaticaly based on rules they refuse to tell
anyone. That alone is enough reason for me not to trust them.
